    Default Ways to beat coronavirus after lockdown

    “ Minimum spends could be brought in at shops to discourage short, frequent visits, and shopping trips could be allocated based on the first letter of people's surnames, the study says. People could bring their own tools, such as tongs, to pick up shopping, and use probes to press PIN numbers or use a finger joint, rather than fingertip, to touch objects.”

    Shopping with tongs and keeping cats inside among ways to beat coronavirus after lockdown, study says

    Oh no, how would that be enforced - ID check or credit card companies would help?

    Mr Tong says he does not want to go shopping with you.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I find it odd that ATMs don’t do contactless. I can pay up to something like £250 in a shop with a double-click on my Apple Watch and a wave near the machine, yet to get the same amount out of a cash machine I have to touch it?

    True, but it's a few weeks now since I've used an ATM or paid with cash.

    That's strange, all the ones around me allow contactless withdrawal. Are you ensuring that you make clear to the other person you have a gun?

    Same. I was already at the point where the only places I still used cash were the Chinese takeaway and the barber’s. Both are now closed, so the small amount of cash remaining in my wallet is completely useless

    Much the same here I have a fiver in my wallet and it hasn't moved in a month. I normally draw £20-30 a week out for incidentals. Contactless has upped to £45 I think.

    Childcare place was the only place I used cash. Free banking (ATM withdrawals and card payments) largely doesn't exist in Ireland, but credit cared tap has no charge for me so I use that.
